French outfits go beyond a trench coat with a striped tee, and you’ll soon find that French women have their own set of staples that we might not necessarily expect (wrap dress and straw bags, anyone?).
After much research, I’ve put together outfits that are authentic French spring fashion so you can blend right in with the
7 French Spring Fashion Outfits
1. wrap dress + strappy sandals or block heels + straw bag + cardigan
The goal is feminine yet easy going. If you’re chilly, throw on a cardigan. That’s the French choice to cover up!
2. slip dress + cardigan + straw bag + strappy sandals or low block heels
Slip dresses are one of those versatile pieces you can get so much wear out of. They’re not “bedroomy” to me at all (when styled correctly)! I mean, if you look like this when you go to bed, then girl, teach me your ways haha!
3. cropped flared jeans + white or printed blouse + strappy sandals
Jeans + top may sound simple, and though it is, it looks anything but. French girls are known to wear the classic white blouse with jeans, but also break out a feminine and small print every now and then. You can’t go wrong with either option! Related: How to Elevate a Simple Tee and Jeans Outfit
So side note, this bag is not your typical French bag. It’s a basket I found around my house while I’m waiting for my Jane Birkin basket to come 😉 But here’s a style tip- you can throw a silk scarf on anything haha!
4. chunky cardigan + jeans + straw bag + espadrilles
French women can take something as basic as jeans and a cardigan and make it look different by their styling! I tied it for something different and cute shoes and accessories take it up a notch! Related: 3 Unique Ways to Wear a Cardigan
5. printed skirt + basic tee + espadrilles + straw bag
Simple and understated florals seem to be the way French women add spring into their wardrobe. Pair it with a basic and simple top and you’re good to go!
6. slip skirt + basic tee + gold necklace
The idea that French women only wear stripes is a myth! You’ll see bits and pieces of animal print, especially leopard, scattered throughout their wardrobe. Always balanced out with simple pieces though!
7. white jeans + beige top + basket bag
Neutrals? No surprise there. But instead of the dark colors such as black, brown, and navy, whites
Are there any key pieces you’re missing that you need to copy these looks? If you had to get anything, I’d get a straw bag. It just adds that perfect touch to any look and was a constant in most of these French outfit combos!
